Husband Admits Faking Wife's Classical CDs
As I suspected and hoped, it seems to have been a love story. The husband faked the recordings to mask the groans his wife made during recordings, brought on by her fight with cancer. Small patches grew bigger and bigger until he just slapped her name on entire recordings by other artists. It's still unclear whether she knew or now. Did he keep her away from the released recordings? Did he play her them and watch her marvel at how much better it seemed than when she was recording? (This seems unlikely, given how any artist at that level should instantly recognize a recording as not being by them.) In any case, it's a truly amazing tale of deception and love and I can't wait to see the movie.
